Hunter Douglas, a global manufacturer of custom window treatments, has expanded its portfolio of fabrics to include collections from two artists: San Francisco-based textile designer Seema Krish and New York City-based visual artist Marcie Bronkar.
The lighting and shade company explains the Design Studio Featured Artist series provides designed textiles that can be used across a variety of shading projects to complement the connected home.
“We often hear there can be a disconnect between designers and integrators when it comes to talking about technology in the home, and Hunter Douglas serves as the perfect bridge to open the conversation,” states Maren Gehling, national sales manager, Custom Integrators.
“Members of our Custom Integrator Program have found that our vast collection of fabrics and designs, along with our PowerView platform, helps designers understand how the shades complete the connected home experience. The new Design Studio line adds another selling point to an integrator’s toolbox.”
Through its product line, Hunter Douglas boasts that offers the design aesthetic homeowners and designers are looking for, while also offering the convenience and interoperability that automated shading provides. As integrators continue to tackle the learning curve presented by the design-forward automated shade category, the customization options of the Hunter Douglas portfolio invite homeowners, integrators, and designers to synergize and find the perfect solution – without compromising on style or functionality the company notes.
Hunter Douglas also stresses the new Design Studio collections are designed to complement and coordinate with the Design Studio Core Fabric Line and the entire assortment of Hunter Douglas window treatments. Additionally, both Seema Krish and Marcie Bronkar’s collections are fully customizable and offered with a variety of operating systems including its PowerView automation hardware.
